This packet contains 11 Depth and Complexity icons. EACH icon contains 8 different activities to introduce/review the concept with your class.
In our class, we like to use the icon to introduce the new icon. With the circles I am able to use them as notes as I teach. While I teach, the students jot down notes on their "circle maps". Finally, after introducing the new concept, we put the poster up in the classroom. When all icons are taught, we are able to have all the posters up throughout the year. This packet even contains “test” like worksheets.
These are a great way to allow kiddos to use it throughout the ENTIRE year!!!
Depth and complexity tools were developed by Professor Sandra Kaplan following
extensive research into what types of knowledge distinguished experts in a field of
study from those with only a surface level of knowledge. Great for GATE style classrooms or general ed classes that need to take students to higher level thinking.
